    "Well, the people that started it didn't have teachers!"

    What I have learned from my sifu "geezer" on this forum I have only taught the concepts and ideas of. I never made it far enough to where I would feel comfortable even informally teaching the system. If it is a casual exchange of ideas it can still be both fun and useful.

    wing chun turnover rate

    I know for many sifus, they put effort into students only to see them sometimes disappear from training. I feel as if it is important for the sifus to not take this personal although I realize this can be really difficult because the sifu is putting their heart and soul into their students.

    wing chun turnover rate

    With as big as wing chun has become across the globe, it is a given that there will be plenty of students coming and going. For those of you who teach wing chun I was curious what your turnover rate with students is? Also having long terms students who disappear what steps do you take with...

    Wing Chun with a disability

    Danny T that is incredible and even I am inspired by what you do. It's funny sometimes I think us having these problems gets us to push our martial arts further then we would have had we not had the muscle pain.

    Wing Chun with a disability

    Hello everyone I practice wing chun along with other kung fu systems and I have severe fibromyalgia. It has given me a great deal of problems over the years to train consistently or to practice certain techniques. I was curious how many other people here practice wing chun and have a disability...

    Is it Wing Chun?

    I think everyone here is somewhat right in their own way. For me the only wing chun I have been exposed to have all shared what Eric_H spoke of about structure and rules. But we have to consider the difference we are talking about is why no one is agreeing. It all depends on if you are just...

    Augustine Fong/Ho Kam Ming system contrasted to Leung Ting system

    Hi Sifu Steve. Actually I am not planning on checking out the Fong system and Ian I wasn't so much asking about choosing a school as I just want to know what some of the technical differences are between the Leung Ting system and the Fong system from anyone who has done one or both. I will talk...

    Augustine Fong/Ho Kam Ming system contrasted to Leung Ting system

    Hi everyone this is not a wc system vs system thread. In the city I live the two main organizations with teachers seem to either be/have been related to Leung Ting's system or the Augustine Fong system. I was just curious for anyone who knows about these two systems, what are the differences you...

    Have you ever tried building up a group?

    sifu steve you have a website up which is a good start. I would consider posting the schedule on it and cost that tends to draw students right away. Maybe just try a craigslist ad. You could also make a few short clips of the training and on the youtube videos put a link to the website.

    Hello to everyone

    Sifu Geezer after learning some wing chun from you I went back and tried internal again. I find similarities between xing yi and wing chun definitely. The turning in the styles is the same, the stance is similar, and many of the 2 person drills are almost the same as well. Xing yi tends to use...

    Flai Energy

    Thats true you do see some forms of a flailing action in various parts of the wing chun system but as far as the straight blast goes it wouldnt fit with the wc system's approach to use a flailing motion. Then its basically starting to move away from short power.
